Here Are the Winners of the 2022 British Fashion Awards
Including Pierpaolo Piccioloi for Designer of the Year and Bella Hadid for Model of the Year.
The Fashion Awards 2022 took place at London‘s Royal Albert Hall on December 5, with a star-studded guest list and an incredible array of talented nominees. Hosted by Jodie Turner-Smith, the night aimed to bring the creative community together to acknowledge those at the forefront of change and innovation.
Categories included Designer of the Year, which recognises a British or international designer whose innovative collections have made a notable impact on the industry, alongside Model of the Year, which recognises the global impact of a model who over the last 12 months has dominated the industry, followed by Independent British Brand and the BFC Foundation Award. The final award recognises an emerging designer who has received support from the Foundation this year and has had a major impact on global fashion in the last 12 months, for which S.S. Daley won.
“I would like to congratulate all the nominees of The Fashion Awards 2022,” begins BFC’s Chief Executive Caroline Rush in a press release. “Each one of them contributes a remarkable amount towards creating an industry that promotes self-expression and individuality, perpetuates joy and optimism and pioneers in innovation and positive change. I look forward to celebrating the incredible work of our nominees, Leaders of Change, Award winners and the wider industry.”
This year’s ceremony also included fifteen “Leaders of Change,” which highlighted the designers, brands and creatives who have made a positive change within the industry, through three core categories of Environment, People and Creativity. Jefferson Hack is also set to receive a Special Recognition Award for Cultural Curation, for his work in empowering young people.
